Patch 5.0 Notes

It is with great pleasure that we announce the patch notes for FINAL FANTASY XIV: Shadowbringers have been released in their entirety, including all you need to know about job actions, materia, and more!

A new world of adventure awaits in the First as you are called to its continent of Norvrandt. Will you cast off your role as the Warrior of Light, and rise to the challenge to bring back the darkness?

You must face the myriad perils of lands unknown, but how you do so will be up to you. Whether you choose to take up the fight as a gunbreaker or dancer, see the world through the eyes of a Viera or Hrothgar, or leverage Trust to challenge dungeons with your NPC allies, you will find there is much to be done both near and far─and plentiful updates to the battle system and crafting and gathering, as well as other new features and improvements to make it all worth the while.

The raid Eden's Gate is scheduled to be released in 5.01.
